Last Straw

Last Straw Eco-Friendly Reusable Straws | Coral & Calypso

By now, we've all seen the terrible effects that single use plastic products have on our planet. Straws have become synonymous with plastic pollution, as videos of injured sea turtles went viral earlier this year. 500 million straws are used and discarded every day in the United States alone. That’s 175 Billion a year filtering into landfills and littering our waterways and oceans. Ditching the plastic straw for an easy-to-use, eco-friendly alternative has never been more fashionable thanks to Last Straw. The 100% recyclable Last Straws are produced using sustainable processes and materials, and come packaged in fun, reusable takealong pouches to throw in your purse or luggage with ease.

Salt Life

Shop Salt Life® | Coral & Calypso

Salt Life is passionate about the ocean and protecting it for future generations to enjoy. The Salt Life brand has partnered up with organizations that strive to protect the ocean and its wildlife through conservation efforts, enforcement, reef creation and sustainability programs. One of these organizations is Artificial Reefs International who work to create artificial reefs by repurposing old ships that would otherwise be scrapped, turning these vessels into sunken underwater habitats where many species of fish and crustaceans can thrive, eventually making it possible for corals to grow and develop. Salt Life has also teamed with the Roatan Marine Park to preserve and protect the waters and reefs in Roatan, Honduras. Through education, conservation, and enforcement they strive to promote a healthy and sustainable marine environment that can provide fisheries and tourism without harming the ecosystem.
